Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard.

With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you donít need to worry about fake reviews.

  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

My CL Homework

I'm going to start out using this journal to post my homework for the next day's session. I need accountability in this area and this seems a good way to do it. Questions are welcome and suggestions too, but mainly I want to be sure to do this everyday. I'll try this out for 2 weeks and see how it goes.

I'm testing the ninja upload indie for this post. This is homework for December 7, 2012 as of the December 6 RTH close.

Good example of pull back to symmetry support with confluence of whole number and fibs, and yest. VPOC (not shown), 9:22am. The .618 of that swing is in the way of higher prices so far, 9:54am.

You need to make sure the vvScreenshot tool is set to BBcode enabled, then when you paste it will contain the proper IMG bbcode tags you need to embed the image.

Hopefully @vvhg will set this to default in the next version, because I see a ton of people make the same mistake.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Dont take this the wrong way.


It looks like M&M's melted on the screen.
I commend you for journaling. I actually journal all the Cl journals from futures.io (formerly BMT).
This site is nice for pulling out little tidbits of info to use.
Good luck RH
